I took a shot at the ISS pass on January 18 as seen from Milford, PA. It was a beautiful evening. It had been very windy and frigid earlier, but the wind calmed down and the cold was not too bad. I chose an exposure time of 1 sec so that I can get enough frames to make a movie. I started the timelapse and sat down in a chair in the snow left from the latest storm . The ISS came just as predicted and was visible early even through trees. Then I realized, it's headed for the Pleiades! It went beautifully just under.
